... Generalized index theorem, from which ABS with flat
dispersion can be expalined, is proved.
Our strategy to prove the index theorem is general, and it gives
a general framework to prove the bulk-edge correspondence.

Entanglement of Indistinguishable Particles Shared between Two

Second quantization is a formalism used to describe and analyze quantum many-body systems. It is also known as canonical quantization in quantum field theory, in which the fields (typically as the wave functions of matters) are thought of as field operators, in a similar manner to how the physical quantities (position, momentum etc.) are thought of as operators in first quantization. The key ideas of this method were introduced in 1927 by Dirac, and were developed, most notably, by Fock and Jordan later.In this approach, the quantum many-body states are represented in the Fock state basis, which are constructed by filling up each single-particle state with a certain number of identical particles. The second quantization formalism introduces the creation and annihilation operators to construct and handle the Fock states, providing useful tools to the study of the quantum many-body theory.
